Scott Joplin nasceu em Texarkana, nos Estados Unidos. Filho de um ex-escravo, soube tirar proveito de algumas aulas com um músico alemão que morava na cidade e se tornou um pianista habilidoso. Ganhava a vida se apresentando em clubes e “casas de tolerância” ou viajando para tocar com bandas e acompanhar cantores. Em 1899, publicou Maple Leaf Rag, sua primeira peça para piano no estilo ragtime, que combina o ritmo regular das marchas e danças de tradição europeia com as síncopes das tradições musicais afro-americanas (e possivelmente também latino-americanas). A partitura vendeu meio milhão de cópias, garantindo a Scott Joplin a reputação de “Rei do Ragtime”. Desejoso de ter êxito em gêneros mais ambiciosos, escreveu duas óperas: A Guest of Honor [Um Convidado de Honra], que fez uma pequena turnê em 1903, mas foi perdida, e Treemonisha, em três atos, composta em 1910. A parte vocal de Treemonisha (com acompanhamento de piano), foi publicada em 1911, mas Joplin morreu antes de poder garantir que a ópera fosse produzida. Treemonisha é cantada do começo ao fim, com alguns números no estilo das parlour songs [canções de salão] da época, mas com ritmos de ragtime em destaque na maior parte da escrita para a orquestra e para o coro. O libreto, do próprio Joplin, transcorre num único dia de 1884, numa fazenda do Arkansas ocupada por escravos libertos após a Guerra de Secessão. Treemonisha é a filha adotiva de um casal gentil, que deu a ela uma boa educação. Ao se insurgir contra a influência de um grupo de “feiticeiros” que incentivam a crença em superstições, ela é raptada por eles. Após ser resgatada, ela os perdoa, e os moradores da fazenda a saúdam como sua professora de moral e líder. Quando Treemonisha finalmente foi encenada, durante o boom do ragtime nos anos 1970, isso aconteceu, em grande medida, graças a Gunther Schuller, que não apenas era um eminente compositor, regente e educador, mas também ex-músico de jazz e um respeitado historiador do gênero. Schuller regeu as primeiras récitas profissionais completas de Treemonisha na Houston Grand Opera, em 1975 (e depois gravou a obra). Para essas récitas, fez uma nova partitura da obra para orquestra completa, já que a orquestração do próprio Joplin não havia sobrevivido. (FONTE: Revista OSESP Edição nº 6 / 2016 - Outubro)

The destruction of Hurricane Harvey was felt throughout Houston, including the Downtown Theater District, home to the city’s major performing arts center The Wortham Center. The center is home to Houston Grand Opera. When faced with the devastation that forced the Wortham to be closed for repairs well into next year, HGO got creative and set out to create a new performance space inside the George R. Brown Convention Center. Starting with a blank canvas (Hall A3) the size of two football fields, they built a full size 1,700 seat theater named Resilience Theater. Artistic & Music Director Patrick Summers and Managing Director Perryn Leech gave Houston Public Media a sneak peak of HGO’s home for the 2017/2018 season.
